As most people love tabs, and use them as a way to help categorize/organize
their browsing, and especially now with the ability to bookmark groups of tabs,
it would be great if there was a tab manager tool that could be launched that
would allow one to see what tabs are open in which Mozilla windows and give the
ability to reparent tabs to facilitate organization and bookmarking.

David, I am aware of both the Bugzilla Helper and the the Bugwriting Guidelines.
 Did you even read the bug before posting this boilerplate?  This is an RFE. 
Therefore there are no relevant BuildIDs or steps to reproduce.  The feature
doesn't exist (yet, hoepfully).

Opera has a "List Windows" feature in its Window menu, but it doesn't let you 
see or copy URLs.

IE7's implementation of this feature

I recently saw some screenshots of IE7 running on Windows Vista, and they
suggest that IE will solve this problem using something like OSX's "Exposé"
feature. I don't know the actal mechanics of how it works since it's just a
screenshot, but they seem to show a thumbnail of each open tab along with its
title. Presumably left-clicking the image would activate that tab, and
right-clicking could bring up options like "Copy URL" and "Bookmark this page".

roc's "render webpages to image" technology could make implementing this
feasible. See his blog:

Duping to bug that has partial implementation

*** This bug has been marked as a duplicate of 323315 ***

Chris Thomas, bug 323315 is a bug for the Mozilla App Suite. Should that bug be changed?

In addition, I think the original intention of this bug was to have a list, not a thumbnail layer. It would work very well to integrate a revive-window/tab function (bug 152391 and 39165) into the list.
